-Plates-formes de e-learning et e-formation - 2010 Le répertoire des plates-formes de e-formation, LMS, LCMS et autres systèmes de gestion de contenu et de parcours de formation est séparé en trois catégories: plates-formes open-source,plates-formes publiques ou gratuites etplates-formes commerciales. Certaines de ces plates-formes sont très coûteuses, d’autres sont capables de transformer votre serveur en campus virtuel pour quelques centaines de dollars ou d’euros seulement; ensuite viennent les frais d'adaptation, d’entretien, de gestion et autres. Évolution Après un sommet de près de 300 plates-formes en 2004, une consolidation a eu lieu, mais nous constatons cette année une reprise de la croissance du nombre de plate-formes. La plupart des plates-formes s'améliorent sans cesse et celles qui sont disparues n'emportent pas toujours les entreprises qui les avaient créées : ces entreprises se tournent presque toutes vers la conception de cours et la prestation de services sur les plates-formes bien établies. Ce qui s’en vient
LMS Selection You should prepare your RFP based upon your requirements. It is not necessary to indicate priorities of requirements, nor list them in any specific order, in the RFP itself so that each requirement is responded to equally. You should try to be as specific as possible about each requirement so that the LMS company can respond directly to your requirement rather than provide a general response. You should also include scenarios in your RFP. You also will need to request a proposed project plan for implementation based upon your criteria. Finally, provide a short response time for the RFP.

CMS: How To Use This Site about good practices and sound policies that accelerate the effective adoption and use of technologies in teaching and learning. For more than a decade, WCET's EduTools website was a leading destination for educational technology decision makers. The independent reviews and side-by-side comparisons of educational technology products were used by colleges and universities of all sizes, higher education systems and other multi-campus service providers to expedite and streamline their internal processes for the review and evaluation of products, saving them time and duplicative effort. EduTools was best known for its CMS/LMS comparative reviews and a detailed matrix of CMS/LMS features and criteria. EduTools Matrix Many visitors to EduTools used the detailed matrix of LMS/CMS features, descriptions, and criteria as a tool in developing requests for proposals and evaluation requirements. EduTools was launched in 2001 with funding support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
Barry Sampson | Open Source LMS – 10 Alternatives to Moodle Since the economic downturn began I’ve noticed much more interest in open source Learning Management Systems (LMS), and it’s no surprise that when people ask what the options are, the answer is usually Moodle. Now, there’s nothing wrong with Moodle, but it certainly isn’t the only open source LMS out there. Because there is no licensing cost involved with open source solutions, its easy for organisations to just jump in and set up the first solution that comes along. There is however a cost to installation and support, either financial or time related. Anyone setting up an LMS has a responsibility to research and choose the solution that is right for the learners and the organisation. As a starting point here are 10 open source alternatives to Moodle. Docebo In use in corporate and higher education settings. eFront The base install is quite minimalist, but this is easily extended with modules available from the site. OLAT A well featured system in its tenth year of development.
10 Things to Consider Before Choosing an LMS So you know you want an LMS. Good. This article isn’t here to tell you why you need one, or why you should use one, this is a guide for anyone who already knows they want an LMS, just wants a guide for what to check for. Over the years I have spent many hours testing content and trying various different Learning Management Systems, and have even done some LMS (like) design work with Articulate Online. Over that time period I have had the opportunity to learn a lot about what does work well, and what doesn’t work well in a lot of systems, so based on my knowledge on the subject, here is my list 10 things to consider before choosing in an LMS. 1. There are 3 LMS standards of significance these days, AICC, SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004. A little history on the standards… The AICC standard was developed by the aviation industry in 1993 and has evolved a bit over the years, but remains pretty similar to its roots. SCORM 2004 was released in 2004 (shocker huh?) 2. 3. Use Scripted Demos 4. 5. 6. 8. 9.
13 logiciels de e-learning open source Voici un panorama des logiciels libres et open source de e-learning. Mais avant de découvrir cette liste, un rappel des fonctionnalités attendues de ces systèmes d’apprentissage en ligne également appelés LMS (Learning Management System). Qu’est-ce que le e-learning ? Ces solutions s’adressent à des apprenants (les élèves) en leur mettant à disposition une pllate-forme d’apprentissage, des tuteurs ou animateurs, des contenus textuels ou multimédia didactiques, une stratégie pédagogique et tutorale et des activités de validation de connaissance (source Wikipédia). Je vais m’intéresser dans cet article à la plate-forme d’apprentissage. Elle répond aux besoins suivants : Cette plate-forme doit également supporter le format SCORM qui est une spécification permettant de créer des objets pédagogiques structurés. Comme vous le constaterez ce n’est pas le choix qui manque, voir il y a trop de choix, la force et la faiblesse de l’open source. Panorama des logiciels libres et open source d’e-learning
Angel vs Moodle vs Sakai vs Blackboard – which LMS? « Juliaitani’s Blog Talking about Learning Management System (LMS) or Content Management System (CMS) in higher education is a bit of a hit in a glass wall. You see where you want to go but for some reason you can’t reach a common point. Many popular LMS / CMS today offer what it seems to be a similar gamut of features and tools. EduTools does a great job by letting you select which LMS vendor you’d like to compare and finally produces a comparison spreadsheet The Instructional Technology Council (ITC) published a survey on elearning at Community Colleges page demonstrating WebCT and Blackboard still leading stats in LMS costumers in 2007. There are two levels of expectations that I believe at some point they coincide but at many other instances they grow apart greatly. Institutional = assessment numbers that bring great stats, a good support plan in case of external hosting (including ticket responses of 1 hr max)… I came up with this comparison grid.
Blackboard vs. Moodle: a comparison As a user of Blackboard at Bournemouth University I have been involved in various discussion about it’s merit (or lack of). These are usually started by someone who doesn’t like Blackboard, and probably hasn’t used it much either (or even tried). They are usually fans of Moodle, even if they’ve not used it (but have talked to people who have). You know the sort, and have probably had similar discussions yourself, from either side of the fence. Thanks to @kennfj I found this report from the University of North Carolina (USA) on a comparison between Moodle and Blackboard Vista, with a view to which system will they implement across the Institution; Moodle vs Blackboard Vista evaluation report from University of North Carolina from May 2009 It is a fairly comprehensive study with some very interesting points on both sides of the argument, and I strongly recommend you read it, if you get a chance. The conclusion states:
E-Learning 101 This post is dedicated to my father, Frank J. Weiss, who passed away on 4-7-12. He often found it difficult to explain to others what I did and more importantly, what is e-learning. Part of the reason was, he wasn’t tech savvy although he was willing to take it for a drive. I think a lot of people in our space are like my Dad. Wake Up! The reality of e-learning is that ambiguity still plays a big role in the space. The challenges are two-fold a. b. The end result? The difficulty in explaining to others – either the person who needs to green light it, the end users – i.e. your learners, committees of people who come from different departments, salespeople who are unfamiliar with the space and thus tend to either wing it or are honest and just say, “I do not know.” Hopefully, this will eliminate some of the confusion without sitting in a seminar listening to someone who loves jargon but forgets to explain it – in everyday terms (a huge peeve of mine).
